Blue Lake

Surprise! Blue Lake is a little gem in the middle of the towering talus slopes of the Tushars. The frigid waters are fed by melting snowpack from the adjacent peaks to form this intensely azure blue lake.

Looking for an intermediate hike that leads to breathtaking sights? Start at Mud Lake, take trail #172 and it will lead you to Blue Lake. This six-acre, cerulean blue lake lies below the towering heights of Mounts Baldy and Belknap. Feeling adventurous? Take an overnight horseback or backpacking trip from the bottom on the South Fork of North Fork trail #062 – an incredible trail with tons of water crossing. Trails around Blue Lake are a mountain biker’s dream, fast and fun alpine tree runs with incredible views.
